Terrific Tuesday

This morning in reading we created a checklist to use as we revised and edited the BCR we answered yesterday in class. Then I continued reading Should There Be Zoos and we added to our capture sheet.

While I met with reading groups the students used the checklist and a blue marking pencil to revise and edit their own BCR. Then they recopied their improved response to be handed in and scored.

Reading Groups
Crabs: We reviewed last nights homework and identified the chewed chewing gum ball as the reason Amber was never going to talk to Justin again. Then we began reading and discussing chapter 8. For homework the children need to read pages 67-71 and explain what Amber realizes about best friends.

In math the students worked on a review packet for the unit 4 assessment. After all students completed the packet, I reviewed each question as the students corrected their work and asked clarifying questions. They are expected to study this packet for homework tonight. The unit 4 assessment will be tomorrow.

Following PE, lunch and outdoor recess, we continued reading Should There Be Zoos and adding information to our capture chart. After that, they children continued working on their BCR from this morning while I met with reading groups.

Bears: We had a great discussion about why Kyle told Nick that the Reds think he cheated. Tonight's homework is to read chapter 11 and write a 3 sentence summary telling me the most important events in the chapter.

Lions: We discussed and shared last night's homework. Tonight they need to read chapter 3 and take notes (on their novel schedule--no sentences needed) to help them discuss the answer to the think about it questions tomorrow in class.

The students ended the day , working in their small groups in which they built their harp, to answer some questions about changing the pitch using the harp.
